chat apps

Have been a BB fan all these years and waited anxiously for the BB10, watched the launch webcast and was thrilled to know thatthe new OS promises to support apps like "SKYPE" & "WHATS APP". But after buying the handset i find that I am unable to get these two apps and seems they are not supported ont he Z10. Now despite having invested in Z10 I cannot start using the same as I will get disconnected with my whats app contacts from my perivious Bold 9900.Pls help as to how can resolve this issue.

Re: chat apps

Hi there,

Both of these apps are coming soon, but are not yet available. They were announced at launch, but not yet available. Hopefully we'll see both apps shortly.

Re: chat apps

I actually emailed WhatsApp direct and asked them about it since I am a big user of it. 

 

Here is the reply I got from them. 

 

"Hi ned,

We are working on a native BB10 version that will be available in a matter of a few weeks.

-neeraj"
